Melbourne Night Noodle Markets Are Back With a Sizzling Line-up for Foodies

The iconic Melbourne Night Noodle Markets are back for 2022 and bigger than ever. Returning from Thursday 10 November until Sunday 27 November, you’ll be able to eat and drink your way through Birrarung Marr as it’s packed with hawker-style stalls, pop-ups, drinks and live entertainment. Co-presented by Citi and Optus, it’s so delicious that one visit simply isn’t enough.

Already feeling hungry? In terms of the drool-worthy eats that will be up for grabs, you can expect noodles galore, endless dumplings, melt-in-your-mouth bao and of course, an array of delicious desserts for the perfect end to a memorable evening. Big names that will be taking the stage include Hoy Pinoy, Flying Noodle, May’s Malaysian Hawker, Wonderbao, Roll Up, Gelato Messina, and Twistto. If you don’t see your favourite, don’t fret, there are more stallholders yet to be announced.

“We’re very excited to be bringing back one of Melbourne’s most popular, live food festivals after a two-year hiatus,” said Conor Farrell, Head of Night Noodle Markets. “From the variety of stallholders to the food on offer to the experiences from our partners, we’re planning to make this one of our tastiest and most colourful Markets yet. We’re particularly grateful to our Major Partner, City of Melbourne, for helping us make this happen.”

It’s not all about the food either, with a stellar line-up of live entertainment and plenty of drink options to keep you going all night long. Sit back and relax in the Stomping Ground Beer Garden or at the Aperol Spritz Bar, or, if cider’s more your thing, take a break at Cider’s Rekorder-land. There will also be a Cointreau Margarita Kombi, and Dan Murphy’s Zero% Bar which will be shaking fresh non-alcoholic cocktails. 

The entertainment also doesn’t disappoint, providing the perfect atmosphere for a night of slurpy, salty indulgence, thanks to the much-loved Lion Dancers. Enjoy the sounds of drumming, and sights of dancing and bright lights on Monday through to Wednesday evenings from the 14th of November at 7pm and 8pm to see what all the fuss is about. Plus, Optus is also hosting an interactive activation showcasing their innovative new product, Call Translate, which translates calls from different language speakers in real time – we’re intrigued, if not a little nervous.
